Extreme 40s, 2014 Series

This year the series regain the level of teams they had previous AC34 and the support of a major sponsor like Land Rover. Groupama, Alinghi, Team New Zealand & JP Morgan are among the team highlights.  I hope they can get more wind this year, as it maybe a nice promotional show for the big cities but if no wind the show the X40s can provide, will be diluted and they might change Extreme by 'Parade'...

I still remember the X40s show at Cowes when they were dedicing if cats were to be chosen for AC34. To compare the AC45 circuit had wind in almost all locations, Venice maybe was the exception.
